Happy Beltane!

Our Miniature Maypole

A maypole for the fairies… I managed to buy this shallow pot just before the lockdown, and planted it with a few ‘weeds’ from the garden – grass growing in flowerbeds, forgetmenots, violets, and speedwell that were small enough. I don’t think my timing was perfect as they finished their flowering too early, but it is nice to celebrate with. This year the May is actually in flower in our hedge today, a first for us here as normally it is another week or two, or three.
